ruling on a rule change

Pandora SMALL
Last year we had (what I thought was) a fabulous suggestion for a rule change.

I see that I never reported this, or the outcome.

Rachel Eckersley, enviroschools co-ordinator Taranaki, suggested the following change:
When a predator is ‘Pandor-ed’ (ie given to another player via a Pandora) then that predator is removed from the pack for the rest of the game.

So, as part of a reward for the schools that had exceptional input during Game week (Sept 2013), I asked students if they thought this should become a rule of the game.

predatorVectorThe responses were (not all schools replied):

Dyer Street School “It was a close call but overall we voted for keeping the current rule. Interesting discussion though.” NO CHANGE

Marco School “We have discussed the change of rule and are unanimous with leave it alone. Because quote ‘we will run out of predators and takes away the fun of the game.’ NO CHANGE

We could say that Pukerua Bay School are already playing a version of this rule, so we’ll take that as a YES to the new rule

And from Enviroschools Wellington facilitator Gill Stewart YES & co-ordinator Karyn Burgess MAYBE YES

So I was never sure where that left us!? Feel free to try out the rule in a game & give me some feedback.
